obama anxiously waited for the midterm election results. >> you can't understand what happened in the budget crisis that ensued, and that still hovers, without understanding the 2010 elections, because that's the whole deal. >> an historic election for the republican party... >> narrator: and later that evening... >> it's a whole new political world for the president... >> narrator: he knew the worst. >> a whole new day in washington... >> well, it was obviously a sobering outcome, the midterm. he was very unhappy and sad about the loss. we had a meeting at the white house, and the president began by saying, "we got our butts kicked, and there's no doubt about it." >> now the republicans back in power in the house of representatives... >> narrator: his party had decisively lost the united states house of representatives. >> democrats are nursing a major midterm hangover... >> narrator: inside the white house, they knew things were about to change. >> once you change power on the capitol hill, it changes how the other side of pennsylvania deals with it. who are the players, what
obama. once again obama is pushing for higher taxes. don't take our word for it. listen to what he said last night just before the sboel. >> there is a way to solve the budget problems in a responsible way through a balanced approach that the vast majority of people agree with. if we do there is no reason we can't have strong growth in 2013. we can't b have washington dysfunction getting in the way. >> with all respect, free market capitalism is the best path to prosperi prosperity. more tax hikes will not hurt this economy. let's not push our luck. republicans will block it. we'll be right back. ♪ if loving you is wrong ♪ i don't wanna be right [ record scratch ] what?! it's not bad for you. it just tastes that way.

>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that women get birth control? how do we insure that religious institutions aren't forced to pay for it? access to stand-alone-coverage. changes where they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in conflict, are not anymore. one goal is to reduce dramatically the number of unwanted pregnancies. regular use of birth control is one way that works. in this case, the catholic church is protected from having to pay for birth control insurance. my own idea is the solution the obama reached is win-win. getting birth control to women for free will help to make it free. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction makes it no less beneficial to the goal of averting unwanted pregnancies. and with them in many cases, the decision to have an abortion. this is what good, smart, progressive morally uprigh

on capitol hill, president obama has not forgotten what the hagel saga would seem to ignore. we are at war, and we need a secretary of defense. >> it's just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan, and i need a secretary of defense who is coordinating with our allies to make sure that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >> republicans once standard bearers on defense now seem content to be the party of obstruction and vendettas. governor rendell, i think this is a low point, i mean, a real significant low point in temz of how our government works, but you and i were speaking before the break, and you said this crisis probably could have been averted. >> sure. i think the dysfunctionality is in part to blame for, you democrats. we had a chance to make serious reform on the filibuster process, and we took a walk on it. we passed some things that didn't amount to anything. we had a real chance to put a crimp into the dysfunctionalty, and we didn't do it, but i also say, alex, i have no

. there isn't much overlap between critics of george w. bush and barack obama unless you are talking counterterrorism. members of code pink, a group founded during the bush administration to protest the policies of waterboard and detention made their voices heard at yesterday's confirmation hearing for john brennan as cia director. >> they won't even tell congress what country we are killing children in. >> please -- >> senator feinstein. >> if you could please expedite the removal. >> more important than the children of pakistan and yemen? are they more important? do your job! >> the hearing serve as a public discussion of the most controversial counterterrorism policies that began under president george w. bush and, in part, have continued and expanded under president obama. brennan's defense of the secrecy surrounding the administration's most questionable program, targeted assassinations using drone aircraft, was as opaque as the program itself. >> what we need to do is optimize transparency on these issues, but at the same time optimize secrecy and the protection of our national
will join us for a live rare interview and together we're going to hold president obama accountable for the tall tales at the state of the union address and fact checked the speech and president obama was quote, cherry picking when it comes to the facts and here are the biggest mistruths. watch this. after years of grueling recession, our businesses have created over 6 million new jobs. after shedding jobs for more than 10 years, our manufacturers have added about 500,000 jobs over the past. >> and we wish the numbers he threw out were true, but unfortunately as many fact checkers pointed out today, those numbers are not even close and of course, president obama also failed to mention that unemployment is higher today than the day he took office. and those are the not the only questionable figures that he tossed around last night. let's watch this. >> over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficits by more than 2.5 trillion dollars. mostly through spending cuts, but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1% of americans. as a result, we are mor

the planet so in obama's mind it's not a big deal. the more our economy fails, the better for our shrinking country in terms of the carbon footprint. >> i was a little lost with the tortoise and termites. >> i love animals. >> but you make a point. that's what the left argues, they say spend money, is no matter what, as long as you spend it. >> bob, as long as we're spending it on an alien invasion, it would be economically stimulative. >> i'm having a problem with the tortoise and termites. >> tortoise eats the termites. a shrinking economy solves global warming. >> we'll take that to the bank. >> that's a theory. >> all over the place. >> all right. i read it on the web. >> the budget deficit will be below a trillion dollars. this year. a trillion two last year, down to $835 billion. it also calls for unemployment to fall to 5% in the years 14 to 18. so i'm not sure it is the normal you're talking about. and there is economic growth in a lot of sectors and keep in mind, the last three years millions of jobs have been created. >> oh my gosh. first of all, blame george w. bush if you want b

[ applause ] >> the president has outlined a full list of proposals to curb gun violence in america. very quietly, many of those proposals are picking up steam on capitol hill. senate majority leader harry reid said he expects a bill will soon move to the senate floor. the package will include a universal background check, a capacity limit on ammunition magazines, and improvements to record-keeping on mental illness. a universal background check is in sight. and this is probably what they're really going to get. advocacy groups are trying to build momentum. last night, this ad from mayors against illegal guns aired during the supe
: president obama tonight delivers his fourth state of the union address. it coincides with a new news poll that finds 52% of americans approve of the job president obama is doing. while only 38% do not. the speech, of course, will have an emphasis on gun safety which president obama has made a top priority in the wake of the sandy hook school strategy. the 15-year-old honor honor roll student who performed in the inaugural parade only to be gunned down later. they'll bring in other people who have been touched by gun violence. our next guest is one of those house members rosa delora. >> thank you very much. >> michael: before we get into the minutia that we expect to get out of the speech, who are you bringing and why is that? >> i'm honored to have with me tonight, that is a brother of one of the teachers vickie soto. her brother carlos is with me tonight. vickie and carlos' family is from stamford, connecticut which i represent. vickie is a true hero. she hid--she hid some of her students in the closet, and then she stood in front of the others to protect them. then she was murdered as o
